Dealing with Injustice

When the wicked sprout up like the grass,
and when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
it is only that they shall be destroyed forever.”
Psalm 92:7

If we remember the truth stated in this verse – the wicked shall be destroyed forever – we will not become bitter when those who turn to wickedness prosper.  In the end, nobody ever “gets by”.  Keeping that in mind gives us the strength to obey God when others do not.
In this world, the wicked sometimes prosper, and the righteous sometimes have little.  Prepare yourself to deal with both of those realities while you live in this world.  If you do, you will find the strength to overcome the oppression of the ungodly.  Your heart will rest in perfect confidence that after this vain life is over, no wicked soul will ever again be blessed and no righteous soul will ever again suffer.
